NEW IN – New models, new colors, new material! We start the spring with the next generation of sunglasses and glasses. All Eyes on Tomorrow is the motto – but why?
We don’t want to be the typical watch brand or eyewear brand. Nor just any backpack brand. No. We at Kapten & Son offer you your EVERYDAY COMPANION. For every occasion and for every Kapten. And that’s how we want our new frames to become your daily companions. The piece that you can’t put down and that accompanies you every step of the way. So we had to create something that will be a faithful companion not only today, but for a long time to come.
FRAMES FOR TODAY THAT HAVE THE FUTURE IN MIND
The Collection is our next step towards a more sustainable future. Because what we decide today becomes a part of tomorrow, so we want to start our first step now.
And it all starts with the material: As you may know, our eyewear frames are mostly made of acetate. It consists of 70% cellulose and is therefore already more sustainable than conventional glasses made of plastic. 3% are made up of processed color pigments, depending on the coloring of your glasses. And the remaining 27% is diethyl phthalate, a plasticizer that makes the material more supple and flexible. The disadvantage of this substance is that its production is based on petroleum. That is not very climate-friendly. So it was clear to us that it was time to take the next step!
So a large part of our sunglasses collection now consists of triacitin. A compound made from renewable raw materials such as acetic acid and glucose, which is safe for nature and humans. So the bio-acetate we use is 97% renewable resources and 100% mineral oil free. For us, a huge success in terms of sustainability!
Now we come to the really exciting news: the new frames! You can expect eight exciting new models for the upcoming summer season. Enough choice to enjoy the coming sunshine hours to the fullest!
On the one hand we have the Manila – with its square design it makes a striking variation to our ever-popular Marais. The special design with the honeycomb rim makes it an it-piece for all sun lovers.
Then there’s the Lisbon: classic elegance combined with modern cool. The fully rectangular bio-acetate frame combines an iconic oversized shape with a dash of Carl Frederiksen from the Disney movie “UP”. Who can say no to this must-have?
Another model in the new collection is the Nairobi. The feminine oversized frame with a hint of 80s office vibe makes these glasses a sunglass highlight. Playful and elegant at the same time – the perfect combination!
Also in the mix is the Prague – our sweet spot between Maui and Paris. In a light cat-eye shape, the glasses are extravagant and stylish. Perfect for all those who like to stand out.
The icing on the cake from the collection: the Sydney. With its edgy design, it playfully creates an edgy look. If you’re looking for an eye-catcher for your glasses collection, you’re sure to find it with these cat-eye glasses!
Tallin: the 80s icon among our new sunglasses. Here, classic elegance meets modern finesse. The large, square frame makes the glasses a special feature and enhances any outfit.
A model with recognition value – the Vienna is the feminine alternative to our London. The classic design is rounded off with a soft and discreet cat-eye look and makes the glasses a trend-safe everyday companion.
And lastly, we have the Zurich. An ultra-thin acetate-stainless steel combination that makes the double nose bridge hip again. With this model, we have reinterpreted the popular style of aviator glasses! For those who are looking for an individual look.
As if that wasn’t enough, you’re also spoiled when it comes to the model colors! New in the selection are Transparent Hazel, Toffee Tortoise and the Caramel Collection, a warm brown that will have you dreaming of summer. All of our eyewear models are available not only as sunglasses, but also as regular frames for your computer or prescription glasses!
With these many updates, we hope to kickstart your weekend and hope that your new favorite was also included!
